I Forgot About My Fish Planter

I can’t believe I forgot to share my favorite planter!

I think it’s so cool! It makes me happy and it makes me smile.

It’s not a planter. I actually don’t know what it is. I found it at the consignment shop and had my husband drill a hole in the bottom so the excess water can drain out.

It’s been so hot here lately. It was in the 90’s last weekend and this week it’s been in the upper 80s.

It’s been hell for me and my flowers.

I hate the heat.

Between the wind and the heat my flowers are suffering.

Here’s what is left of one of hanging baskets.

Pathetic isnt it?

It was so, so pretty. Red and purple flowers and pso nice and full.

I’m going to get a replacement this weekend.

Its suppose to be in the 70s next week. Hopefully that is true and its suppose to rain.

We need the rain so bad.

And my flowers and I need a break.

Did I mention I hate the heat?

What A Neat Idea

I went to Walmart last night after work last night to get shampoo, nail polish remover and folders.

While I was looking for the folders, an end cap caught my eye. This is what was on that end cap.

I was so excited to see this. What a cool idea.

Finally, crayons to color faces and arms and legs in coloring books. When I was a kid I remember being frustrated because there was only one or two colors to color faces and it was never the color I wanted it to be.

I think it would be so cool to watch kids color with these. To watch and listen to how they describe what color they are and their family and friends are.

Of course I bought them. I need them like a hole in the head.

Now I’ll have to look for a coloring book.

You know what?

I forgot the folders.

I guess I’ll have to go back to the store.

Hopefully I remember the folders…..

June Goals

I have 3 goals for June.

1. 100 Items In 30 Days. My goal is to type the first draft and to read 3 Kindle publishing books.

2. Menopause Romance. My goal is to rewrite and retype and possibly find a market. I’m smack dab in the middle of this menopause crap and feel I need to write this short story. It keeps speaking to me.

3. This blog. My goal is two post twice a week or more, figure out what my goal is for the 2nd half of the year are and learn more about WordPress.

I’ll let you know how I progress throughout the month.

April/May Goals Update

I knew April wasn’t going to be a very productive month for me because of getting the Covid shot and the side effects, being in Vegas for five days and then opening up our trailer at the campground.

Here’s what I accomplished in April.

I typed a draft of If You Don’t Like How The Election Turned Out.

I typed a draft of 5 Minute Memoir.

I didn’t do anything with 100 Items In 30 Days.

I did finish typing the first draft of Jane.

I also new that May wasn’t going to be a productive month either. I was sick for 2 1/2 weeks after I received the 2nd shot and now I am playing catch up.

I didn’t accomplish anything in May.

Wait….anything that was on my list. I did start to revise a short story which I will call Menopause Romance for now. I know it wasn’t on my list, but the characters kept popping into my head and talking to me so I listened.

Hopefully June will be better.

I will let you know what my June goals are in a couple of days.

Gratitude Saturday

I’m grateful to finally see people’s faces.

I grateful the mask mandate has finally been lifted.

I’m grateful to be able to go into the lobby of my bank. I have missed talking and laughing with the tellers.

I’m grateful to see people smile and laugh! Laughter is infectuos. What I have missed most is seeing people smile and laugh.

I’m grateful things are getting closer to the way things used to be.

Finally…..

NaNoWriMo Update.

Before I left for Vegas I finished typing the first draft of my novel for NaNoWriMo.

I’m going to title it Jane for now.

My final word count was 12,801.

The goal was to write 50,000 words.

I am 37,199 words short.

You know what?

I don’t care. 

I’m proud of myself for finishing. 

I started to revise the first 5 chapters on the way to Vegas.  I know what direction I want to go.  There are a couple changes I want to make.

I’m not sure what my June goals are for this yet.  I’ll decide over the weekend.

It’s a great starting point.

Have a nice relaxing weekend while remembering the lives that were lost fighting for our freedom.

Thank you Veterans!!!

Getting Back In The Groove

Ahhh….it feels good to be at one of my favorite writing spot again.

I’m using today to get organized and find out where I am at.

I’m dealing with the folder and notebook I took with me on the plane to Vegas. I have a lot of notes for blog posts. I also started to rewrite the first a couple of chapters of Jane.

I’m trying to figure out my goals for June and what I want to accomplish.

I have some thinking to do.

I’m excited to get back to my writing.

I missed writing and all of you.

Checking In

For the last two weeks I’ve been dealing with the side effects of the 2nd Pfizer covid shot.

I’m glad I got the shot but I was darn tired and had stomach issues.

I haven’t felt like doing crap. I barely made it through the day at work. I ran one errand a day. Otherwise I sat in the chair and watched tv.

I feel better today. Finally.

I’m hoping to blog again soon.

I’m going plant shopping. Yeah!
